Black Dragon Pool is divided into two parts by a stone bridge, Lijiang attraction image

The Black Dragon Pool Park is extremely limpid and a jet of fountain water can be seen gushing constantly onto the surface. Surrounded by towering old trees and bamboo groves, the pool has never got dry even in the years of drought. Came into being in 1394, Black Dragon Pool is divided into two parts by a stone bridge. The color of the water in the south pool is green and the north yellow. Although the water of these two parts meets each other, fish in one pool never visits the other one. There are two Taoist temples in Black Dragon Pool; the lower one is Black Dragon Palace and the upper Longquan Temple. The Black Dragon Palace was first built in 1394 during the Ming dynasty. Enshrined in the temple are the Dragon King, god and goddess of thunder, god of rain and god of wind. Built in a two-courtyard structure, it provides a quiet and comfort place for relaxation.
